Updates on Local Testing and Vaccine Clinics
Schedules being adjusted to meet current and future planning needs
SNOHOMISH COUNTY, WA – Preliminary case counts suggest that Snohomish County is continuing to come down from the peak of the recent Omicron wave. The most recent case rate for the two-week period ending Feb. 19 was 515 per 100,000 residents. This is a welcome decrease from the peak case rate of 3,505 seen last month.
With the drop in cases, coupled with the nearly 80 percent of eligible residents having received at least one vaccine, the Snohomish Health District and partners are working to right-size current vaccination and testing operations.
The Everett site located at 3715 Oakes Avenue will continue to be open Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. next week. The Ash Way Park & Ride site is being adjusted to offer testing on Tuesday through Thursday and weekends, and with vaccines offered on Fridays. Operations for all days are 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
The Health District will also be operating a temporary testing clinic at the Lynnwood Food Bank, located at 5320 176th St SW at the Silver Creek Family Church. The site will be open Mondays from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. through March.
Discovery Health MD has taken over operations of the Monroe testing site, currently located at the Evergreen State Fairgrounds. This transition became effective Feb. 14, and the new hours of operations are 8:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays.
The temporary vaccine clinic at the Everett Mall closed on Feb. 20. Visit www.snohd.org/covidvaccine for vaccine appointments at the Ash Way site or to view a calendar of community mobile clinics and list of other providers offering vaccines in Snohomish County.
Appointments are encouraged for testing, but walk-ins are accepted based on availability. To schedule an appointment, visit www.snohd.org/testing.
